ABSTRACT The first fresh-water microcerberid isopod (Isopoda: Asellota) from the United States is reported from wells in South Carolina (Microcerberus carolinensis, new species). The closest relatives occur in southeastern Europe and belong to a distinct fresh-water clade with triramous pleopod 4 (genus Microcerberus sensu stricto), a group which must be older than the Atlantic Ocean. Reconstructed evolution of morphology indicates that the fresh-water microcerberids are the more primitive ones. For the more derived coastal mesopsammal species, the new genus Coxicerberus is proposed.
